Do you thrive in a busy environment and enjoy the challenge of a demanding workload? We are looking for an exceptionally organised administrator to join our Technical and Scientific Support Department, which spans 5 Divisions, with over 200 staff. You must have an eye for detail and a good working knowledge of Microsoft office, especially Word, Excel and PowerPoint. This is fantastic opportunity to work in a secretarial pool, supporting the Personal Assistant (PA) to the Director.
Your work at EUMETSAT
This is an international environment and you will have tact and diplomacy to deal with staff at all levels. Language skills are important, the working language of EUMETSAT is English so candidates must be fluent in that language while some knowledge of either French or German would be advantageous. You will be up to the challenge of dealing with enquires from staff and partners, with the capacity to handle, prepare and process large volumes of documents to make our Department run successfully. An ability to organise international travel and prepare arrangements for in-house and off-site workshops is key. There is an opportunity to deputise for the PA and to develop your supervisory skills.
What we offer
You will work in a collaborative, international environment which offers you a competitive salary and outstanding benefits. You will work with people who are experts in their field. We value diversity and seek to recruit nationals from our Member States.
A great place to work
At EUMETSAT, we monitor the weather, climate and the environment from our satellites every hour of the day and night. We provide data to meteorological organisations who interpret it to enhance and safeguard our daily lives in Europe and around the world. It is used to manage dangerous weather situations, shipping, air travel, farming and construction – in fact you probably use our data every day!
